COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rapture is our full bodied, heavenly hoppy red beer. 5 types of malt and 6 types of hops make for a truly elating experience. Uplifting aromas of grapefruit and pine, combine with a pithy orange and pronounced citrus flavour which is balanced against a deeply rich and malty body. A satisfyingly dry and crisp finish offers your taste buds redemption. Our red ale will take you to heaven and back…

Small glass served from tap at Schouskjelleren. Reddish-orange coloured body. Lasting layer, totally blanketing the glass. Aroma of apricot and pine. Fresh malt-fruity taste including notes of grapefruits, orange, resin with mid-sweet malts benaeth. Rounded bitter ending. Fine session qualities (happy drinking in friendly company with Hege and OleR in Oslo during a Saturday afternoon, 15.09.2012).

Fin (7421) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2011
Cask, gravity at Harbury Beer Festival, Harbury, Warwickshire, 03.09.11 Reddy brown apperance with a little haze. Some perfume on the nose but continuing whiffs suggest plenty of citrus hops, and that is exactly what the mouth experienced. Fresh, zingy, fresh green hops, lovely bitterness. This is superb beer despite the hazy appearance. A8 A3 T9 P4 Ov17 4.1

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2012
Bottle, Best Western Marina Hotel, Dover, 12/02/12. Needless to say the hotel didn’t provide me with this one. Muddy ruby, fine lacing beige. Floral hop, earthy malt aroma with butter, coffee, cinder toffee. Good background tropical and grapefruit hop. Nutty, bitter floral hop flavour with oily, chocolate orange, walnut notes. Hot metal and green hop burps. A bit washy. Liquorice, digestives. Drinks like a concentrate of Shep Neame Spitfire.

Scopey (6871) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2011
Cask at CP&K. It pours clear amber, with a large foamy beige head and soft carbonation. The nose is wood, smoke, orange, nut and some caramel sweetness. The taste is roasted malt, brown bread, wood, smoke, burnt malt, bitter chocolate, nut and astringency, with a long bitter-woody finish. A tasty hoppy red ale.

rosenbergh (6842) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Draught at the O'Connell's, Tampere, Finland. Clear dark red amber colour with a creamy and foamy off-white head. The aroma is mild with hops, mild bitterness, dry wood and nutty malt. The flavour is much stronger with piney and mild grapefruity hops, mild bitterness, nutty and woody dryness, malt and some paper. Served ice cold. Very low carbonation. I was expecting a bit more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mcberko (6516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
On tap at Euston Tap, pours a cloudy amber with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of resinous hops, followed by a dry caramel bready malt. Flavour is very balanced between hoppy and malty, with strong resinous hops upfront followed by a dry bready caramel malt backing. Robust and flavourful with a dry palate. Excellent red ale.
